Liz Middleton is a sculptor, public artist and stone letter cutter based in London.
Liz trained in fine art at the University of Derby, and stone and letter carving at the City and Guilds of London Art School. She was awarded a two year artist-in-residence studio from the Hampshire Sculpture Trust, and has exhibited sculptural and site specific installations in solo and group shows in the UK. In 2015 she was commissioned to design and carve a contemporary grotesque for the St Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle and became a Yeoman Mason. In 2018 she was awarded two public art commissions by award winning independent school Kings High School for Girls in Warwick and award winning housing developer Crest Nicholson.

Since 2006 Liz has provided and cared for the studio's infrastructure (archive, buildings, facilities, support staff and systems), lead the development and production of the studio’s only monograph “Thomas Heatherwick: Making” published in 2012 by Thames and Hudson, and first solo exhibition “Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary” at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in 2013.
